Question Please help with numbers

I think my question fits into planing. Here it is, I know we talked about this before but I cannot find that thread. I need to multiply recipe by 10 or 15. Can somebody, please help me. I am terible at all this spoons, and cups, and other measuring things. I wish it was all metric. Here is http://www.lachoy.com/recipes/sschicken.jsp] the link[/url]

All the quantities in that recipe are 1's, except the vegetable oil.

That makes it very easy to multiply.

Sweet & Sour Chicken

2 x 10 = 20 tablespoons Wesson® Vegetable Oil, divided
1 x 10 = 10 small onion, chopped
1 x 10 = 10 large red bell pepper, seeded, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1 x 10 = 10 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, sliced into 2 x 1/2-inch slices

and so on ......

There are 16 Tablespoons in a cup. So 20T = a cup and a quarter.

Charlie - 4 TBS equals 1/4 cup. So, if you are multiplying this by 10 here is your recipe:

2 1/4 Cups Wesson® Vegetable Oil, divided
10 small onion, chopped
10 large red bell pepper, seeded, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
10 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs, sliced into 2 x 1/2-inch slices
10 can (8 ounces) La Choy® Bamboo Shoots, drained
10 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
10 jar (10 ounces) La Choy Sweet & Sour Sauce
1/2 cup plus 2 TBS La Choy Soy Sauce
1/2 cup plus 2 TBS cornstarch
1/2 cup plus 2 TBS water

In this recipe this is the most important conversion.
4 TBS = 1/4 cup

If it calls for 1 TBS and you multiply by 10 that equals 10 TBS. 10 TBS equals 1/2 cup then there are 2 TBS to complete the amount. 2 TBS equals 1/8 of a cup

Did that help you or confuse you?
